As a true multi-role helicopter, Airbus’ H145M can be deployed for a range of missions – from light attack, transport and utility to intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance, as well as maritime security. 

Light attack

The flexible weapon management system enables armies around the world to complement their fleets with specialised versions of light attack helicopters.

Transport and utility

For troop transport and utility missions, the H145M's unobstructed flat floor can accommodate two pilots and 10 troops, who can embark/disembark through both sides and the rear clamshell doors. They are afforded excellent exterior visibility through large side windows, along with windows integrated in the clamshell door.

Mission equipment packages include a fast rope system, cargo hooks and hoists.

The high-set main rotor and Fenestron® shrouded tail rotor provide unparalleled safety, access in confined landing zones, and loading/unloading of cargo, passengers and patients while the rotors are turning.

Intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance

The optimised ratio of the cabin volume to the ground footprint – along with its low sound levels and the reduced infrared signature – makes the H145M a discreet and efficient platform, well suited to intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) operations.

Maritime security

The added value of the 4-axis autopilot combined with a weather and search radar, emergency floats, a life raft and an emergency locator transmitter (ELT), allow the H145M to fulfill day and night maritime security missions.

These include exclusive economic zone surveillance and control; maritime counter-terrorism/piracy; ship replenishment; and search and rescue (SAR) and medical evacuation at sea, among others.
